British Academy Postdoctoral Fellowships

This scheme is designed to enable outstanding early career scholars to obtain experience of research and teaching in the university environment, which will strengthen their curriculum vitae and improve their prospects of obtaining permanent posts by the end of the fellowship.  Awards are for three years and applicants must be within three years of the award of a doctorate.  Please note that unsuccessful applicants are not permitted to re-apply.

Oxford Humanities currently hosts over 20 BA Postdoctoral Fellows. Abstracts of current and former Fellows' projects can be found on the British Academy website:

The British Academy runs a two stage application process each year, with the deadline for outline applications falling in late September/early October and for the second stage in February or early March the following year, for Fellowships to be taken up at the beginning of the following academic year. 

For more information on the scheme, including eligibility criteria please see the British Academy website:


Applying through Oxford

Before the British Academy outline application deadline, the Humanities Division coordinates an Expression of Interest stage to select candidates whose applications will be supported by Faculties. Further information will be available here in the early summer.
